What INFFEWS Benefit Cost Analysis (BCA) Tool training workshop

When 21 May to 20 June

Where Various locations

Please bring your own laptop to the training

Our IRP2 team has developed a comprehensive economic evaluation framework to identify and quantify economic, environmental and community values of investments in water sensitive practices and systems.

Sitting within this framework is a Benefit Cost Analysis (BCA) Tool to assess investments related to water sensitive cities, and a Value Tool, which is a database of more than 300 values from recent non market valuation studies relevant to water sensitive projects in Australia.

We released these tools in beta versions during 2018 and we’ve since updated them.

Professor David Pannell, from the University of Western Australia and part of our IRP2 team, will deliver the training. The sessions are designed for those involved in economics, project evaluation, or business case development in water related projects, or those who wish to improve their understanding of how economic tools can improve decision making and deal with the distribution of benefits of a project or investment among multiple stakeholder groups.

To attend the training, you’ll need a basic knowledge of benefit cost analysis and the economics that underpin it. If you lack this background, Professor Pannell has developed a brief online training course to bring you up to speed. The content of that course will be assumed knowledge in the BCA tool training workshop, and all registered attendees will be sent the details of the course prior to the training workshop.

Please bring your own laptop to the training.

Register now for training in May and June.
Numbers for the training sessions are limited.

Registration is free for up to three representatives from each of the CRCWSC’s Essential Participant organisations and for two representatives from each of our Other Participants or SME Associate Partners.

If you are not from a CRCWSC Participant organisation, but would like to attend the workshop, please contact your CRCWSC Regional Manager at their email address below.

Once we confirm your registration, we will send you more information about your training workshop. For now, more details are available on our event page: https://watersensitivecities.org.au/content/national-bca-tool-training/
